Blocking

Blocking

Postby Xerxes on Thu Jul 24, 2008 8:17 pm

I just witnessed this on DoD#1 (avalanche); players from the Wehrmacht have been moving sofas to completely block the doorways (leaving one avenue for attack useless) and then camping on the other side of the sofas.

Nades don't move them either, so if you go in those directions, you basically get slaughtered without being able to move them back.

What's the admin policy on this? is it kosher?

Sorry for the darkness of the images, I have everything toned down.

I always say: @a It is not allowed to move furniture on this server....after this warning, it continues, a kick (take a demo if you can)
Than a ban for 120 minutes...cool down period...
What does other admins think about that?

Trouble is, how can you pin it down to one player? normally whoever has moved it is accompanied by several other players...

Is it ok to contact admins using the '@' command about this?

Indeed it is. Any issue that disrups/spoils gameplay for the majority of players is worth contacting the admins about.

I will make sure I do that in the future, then :)

Tbh, this is the first time I have seen people move furniture deliberately to block players...

some ppl say it's part of the game, perosnaly i think anyone trying to block a route, should be warned kicked and if needed banned.

UKCS Rules
-----

1. Disruptive behavior meant to shock disturb or upset players is forbidden!

I find it disruptive to the game !

On the old version of donner b4 the update there were item removed on donner to stop this.

Your very welcome to use the @ command to draw this to an admin attn.

I could understand that logic if it was easy to move furniture around the maps really easily, but it's not...some objects will get stuck and glitch if you stand on them etc. So that's obviously just a get-out.

I will make sure I report this the next time I see it happening. Thanks to everyone that replied to my post :)

Don't be surprised. Steps have already been taken in that direction, but that will always make part of the game.

And take a look at the previous posts whenever you're concerned about a matter. :wink:

people moving pianos is a recurring problem. best thing to do is to tell admin right away, so they can see/spec who's doing it. If they're blocking a main path of either team, they will be dealt with harshly. as said before, that's just disrupting the game and makes, especially on donner, the rounds too long.

ps:xerxes: unfortuneatly it is fairly easy to move furniture :roll:

Fair enough, it looked like one on my uber-dark setup :) (which I should fix)

Yeah, the main concensus I've seen on this thread is to tell admins ASAP.

Maddox, everytime I've done it the movement glitches and moves erratically, even using 'e' to move them :P
